I came across an interesting thread on another camping forum asking whether deodorant aerosols damage the waterproofing of canvas tents. The answer was a resounding yes, and then someone came in and said he had seen a demonstration by a fire prevention officer showing how aerosol use in any tent seriously compromises the fire retardant.

So, buy roll on or stuck for your Lynx -scented teens, etc.

Apparently the aerosol settles on the tent fabric and is v flammable. Even weeks after it has been sprayed.
